Congratulations on the purchase. My safe is also a Cannon, and they act quickly on the warranty service. I was burglarized many years ago, and the burglars knocked the handles and combination lock off (I believe they are designed to do that) and pounded a crater in the top of the safe with a dumbbell. Cannon sent a locksmith out and he was able to repair it. If it was not repairable, they were going to send me a whole new safe.
Bolt it to the floor and back wall if you can; the underside is the weak spot.

360 pounds empty.....now add in all your guns and as much ammo as will fit - it will gain weight quickly. My safe is ~900 pounds empty - no idea what it weighs full, but it's a lot.

1500 lbs "dry," here, anchored to the foundation. It's going nowhere quickly, without a proper hand truck, Tommy Lift, a couple of cohorts, and a dozen visit to the chiropractor.

Depends on how your floor is constructed.Are they trusses or floor joist and what size. What is the spacing,is it a crawl space or a basement. If it's a crawl space you could get under the area where you want it, and reinforce it to carry the extra load. Three hundred pounds is not alot of weight for a floor. The load is spread out over at least two joist,and isn't much heavier than a good size country boy.
